Abstract

This report comprises the ex ante evaluation of the Northern Periphery and Arctic Programme (NPA) 2014-2020 undertaken by the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC) and Kontigo AB for the NPA Managing Authority. The ex ante evaluation is being conducted in accordance with DG REGIO Guidelines on Evaluation Methods. The main tasks of an ex ante evaluation are grouped into key components, covering (for example)
programme strategy, contribution to the Europe 2020 strategy, indicators, monitoring and evaluation, and consistency of financial allocations. The evaluation team offered input into various elements of the programming process in support of the drafting team. This process allowed the evaluation process to be carried out in an interactive, supportive and constructive way. Overall, the Programme preparation process has progressed with considerable purpose and pace. Throughout the Programme development process the NPA has taken a proactive, strategic and considered approach to discussion and engagement with key stakeholders.
